Cammy had 11 teeth pulled this afternoon in surgery. The Vet found lots of infection in many of them, and just couldn't leave them in her mouth. She will come home with her canine teeth on top and her front teeth, and that's it. Cammy has stitches in her mouth which will dissolve but overall, is doing fine. We'll get to see her tomorrow and DJ will probably be picking her up and bringing her home. Zoey is going nuts tonight wondering where she is. The kids are worried about her, especially Brynn, who has been crawling around on her hands and knees tonight meowing like a cat.
Her bloodwork came back clean pre-surgery, so we decided to move forward and get the teeth pulled. After consulting with a friend who's a vet and my cousin, both said this was very normal and that she would lead a normal, healthy life afterwards. Plus, they both agreed she'd be happier and could even still eat "hard" food since they swallow it whole anyway. So, to surgery she went.
I cannot imagine what she'll look like without so many teeth, but I am hoping her breath will improve, as the vet has promised, as well as her not sneezing near as much. (all the bad teeth were causing huge issues with her nasal cavity and she basically ran around here for 5 years with a permanent sinus infection....poor cat!) I am excited to see her, though, as we have been worried about her. She is such a sweet, sweet cat.
